Patriots QB Tom Brady is all of a sudden not on the team’s injury report. Yesterday, he was listed as “Full Participation in Practice” despite suffering from sore foot, and shoulder injures. Today, he’s not listed on the report at all, according to the Globe’s Mike Reiss.
Bill Belichick has said he expects Brady to play, and Tom Brady said he hopes to play, but it’s not his choice. Basically, for the full information about the injury or any other injury, you’re not getting it from Patriots players or coaches or staff. Belichick has always believed in utilizing anything it takes to get an edge over your opponent, including fooling with the injury report.

Limited Participation in Practice: None
Full Participation in Practice: G/C Russ Hochstein (groin)
